Teacher by day, musician by night
"The kid, head in the cloud, the adult, singing about the poetry he finds in space and planets"
Heyoka is an indie-pop artist based in Brussels, Belgium. Self taught singer songwritter, he started his project in november 2020 with a first single Flashlight.
Heyoka discovered the feeling of playing music at age 9 and quickly falls in love with this feeling. Without any artist in his close family, Heyoka pursued his dream to create music and taught himself various instruments and how to use a musical software. Now part-time French teacher, he yet chooses to express himself in English and finds in the creating act a way to show himself in total vulnerability. Head in the clouds as a kid, Heyoka now tries in his songs to capture the magnificence and poetry he finds in space and planets and link it with the powerfulness of human emotions that we all experience.
Creating his place in the alternative and independent Belgian scene, Heyoka reaches harmony with a combination of nostalgic and orchestral sounds mixing epic music rhythms with more futuristic and space atmosphere at the same time.
Heyoka released his first EP Mercure, last june 2023. A five-songs extended play entirely written, composed and arranged by himself. More recently, he also released a videoclip for the title Forward. A collaboration between a videographer, a choreographer and three dancers. You can go stream it on official Heyoka YouTube channel. With a new drummer playing with him onstage, Heyoka is currently working on his live show and he's looking forward to perform, in Belgium or abroad.
